What’s a Morkie?

A Morkie is the result of breeding a purebred Yorkshire Terrier and a purebred Maltese dog.  Sometimes, these Morkies are bred with one another.

A Morkie’s looks, personality and health are inherited from both breeds, and not always in equal proportions. 

Like their parents, anywhere from about 4 or 5 pounds to 8 to 12 pounds or more, and stand from 6″ high at the shoulder up to 11″ or 12” high.  Morkies have a compact body, and the traditional canine head: rounded dome and mid-length muzzle.  

They have big expressive brown or black eyes and a playful, mischievous expression.
